October 30, 2017

Do you have a garden that needs a little TLC? Or is it just lacking a little personality? The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior of your home, although it is usually not considered with the same amount of care and attention. Here are eight ways to bring charm to your home’s exterior.

  • Change the Front Door

The door you choose can determine the look of your home. If you want to create a welcoming home, it might be time to opt for a different style door to make a big impact to your property. Look for a door that complements your home’s architectural style, and select a style with a glass panel to allow more natural light to enter your home.

  • Add a Water Feature

Create a tranquil exterior by adding a beautiful water feature into your property. From a beautiful fountain to a relaxing stone water feature, turn to to transform your garden. You’ll love nothing more than sitting outside reading a good book or dining alfresco whilst listening to the gentle sound of the trickling water.

  • Hang Window Boxes

Window boxes can be a charming addition to almost any home, whilst appearing to be a beautiful architectural feature. Create a seamless exterior by carefully selecting window boxes that complement your property’s style. It’s a great way to transform your home without embarking on an expensive renovation.

  • Add an Arbor

Adding an arbor can create a charming element to your home’s exterior. To take your arbor to the next level, use clever planting to add interest. A romantic climbing roses is always a welcome addition. You can even incorporate LED lighting into the plantings, which will look magical come night time.

  • Improve Your Driveway

You don’t realize how important your driveway is to your home’s curb appeal until it takes a beating. All it might need to transform the exterior design is to create a more aesthetically-pleasing, durable driveway. So, consider renovating the driveway with either masonry, brick or pigmented concrete.

  • Pick the Perfect Roof

The roof’s tiles can also alter a property’s appearance. If it is wrong, you can guarantee it will stand out like a sore thumb; however, if it is right, it can become a beautiful feature of your home. If you want to change your roof, we recommend consulting either a designer or professional roofer to accurately pick the best color and material for your exterior.

  • Install a Gate

Pair a metal gate with a wooden fence or low masonry wall to capture the eye of your guests and passers-by. It can work in harmony with a landscape, as it will make a small garden feel much deeper than it is.

  • Buy Potted Plants

Add a little character into your exterior with potted plants. All you need to do is take yourself along to a gardening store to find the best decorative planters and plants for your garden. Follow the rule of thumb of planting tall plants in the center of your garden, which should be surrounded by medium-sized plants.
